~Sign a new yearly Volunteer Agreement Form
~Submit a copy of rabies certificate and/or receipt from your veterinarian indicating your pet’s vaccine status. (Equines also need coggins.)
Background Clearances are valid for 5 years from date of issue. Your KPETS Renewal Application will indicate when your clearances are due.

A Reassessment Group Evaluation is required every three years to refresh and review, as well as to address any new guidelines. It is also to insure your therapy pet is still comfortable and appropriate for regular visiting.
You will be notified in your September renewal paperwork, at the end of your third year as a registered team. You will then have one year to complete a group evaluation. You will need to register for the group evaluation online.
